The Hero’s Heart

The Hero’s Heart is a 9 month journey for mothers and sons, ages 10-12 (I’m also running a modified group for ages 7-9…so keep reading), to explore the core values and themes our boys need most in their passage to healthy young manhood.

The Hero’s Heart is a groundbreaking new approach to raising healthy, compassionate, and emotionally intact young men based on the book by Melia Keeton-Digby. This mother-son curriculum is an answer to what our boys need in order to thrive – rather than just survive – in the current culture of traditional masculinity. 

By sharing The Hero’s Heart together, your son will: 

  • Develop a strong sense of self and values.
  • Learn to be comfortable with intimacy, authenticity, and vulnerability in relationships with others.
  • Develop a solid working relationship with his own inner guidance system.

In this program I will be combining my knowledge as a PCC level life coach, The Hero’s Heart program by Melia Keeton-Digby, and other resources such as How to Raise a Boy by Michael C. Reichert, Ph D, and Ground Breaking Guys by Stephanie True Peters.


  • I Have the Heart of a Hero
  • I Choose Resilience
  • I Challenge Gender Stereotypes
  • I Express my Feelings in Healthy Ways
  • I am a Heroic Friend
  • I Thin for Myself & Take a Stand for What is Right
  • I am a Peace Builder
  • I Listen to My Intuition
  • I Care for my Body, Mind & Spirit


All gatherings will take place at 2224 20th Ave NW, Calgary, AB.

***LIMITED SPACE. Maximum 7 to 8 Mom/Son pairs for each group.

This is a program that requires commitment by both you and your son. Inconsistent attendance will have an impact on the groups ability to connect and be vulnerable. Please check the dates. By signing up you are committing to regular attendance. I promise it will be worth it!

Please know that the time you set aside with your son for the Hero’s Heart is not just another item on your to-do list (we have enough already!), but rather it is an investment. The focused time and energy spent connecting and having fun together actually makes mothering our sons easier, as all aspects of parenting flow much more smoothly when the relationship is healthy and strong.

The ultimate goal and core intention of the Hero’s Heart is to create a loving community invested in guiding and supporting our sons.
